Inbetween the missionary work to convert our esteemed vinyl artists to contribute to the brave new world of online publishing, Textone is always more than happy to discover and introduce talented new faces. The latest member of the Textone collective, 21-year old Leif, has already turned some heads in the UK with first his output, but has thus far remained relatively obscure on the continental side of Europe. On this dubby six-tracker, Leif suprises with a thoroughly mature lush sound, simply... favoritefavoritefavoritefavoritefavorite ( 3 reviews ) Topics: Textone, Dubhouse, Techhouse Source: original recording for textone

Waldmeier  found a very tight relationship between the F10.7 solar radio flux and the sunspot number and suggested using the flux for an objective calibration of the sunspot number. He suggested that if this relationship changed later on, the sunspot number should be re-calibrated, assuming that the calibration must have drifted with time. I repeat his analysis using data up to the present and it is, indeed, clear that the relationship has changed significantly. This could be due to a... Source: http://arxiv.org/abs/1008.4832v1
The Sudakov veto algorithm for generating emission and no-emission probabilities in parton showers is revisited and some reweighting techniques are suggested to improve statistics by oversampling in specific cases. Source: http://arxiv.org/abs/1211.7204v1
Mursula et al.  (MTL11) suggest that there is a 22-year variation in solar wind activity that coupled with the variation in heliographic latitude of the Earth during the year, gives rise to an apparent semiannual variation of geomagnetic activity in averages obtained over several solar cycles. They conclude that the observed semiannual variation is seriously overestimated and is largely an artifact of this inferred 22-year variation. We show: (1) that there is no systematically...

Do you remember lefolk's last RB-contribution "weather to shore" back in May 2011? So now he is back with a new, wonderful 8-track-album called "isn't this dangerous?". lefolk is audio/video artist Leif Folkvord of Ann Arbor, Michigan USA. He has released his album "intermitter" on NKR. His self-released material is available via audio.lefolk.com. "isn't this dangerous?" is deep and moving 48-minute journey.

We review the evidence for the argument that Rudolf Wolf's calibration of the Sunspot Number is likely to be correct and that Max Waldmeier introduced an upwards jump in the sunspot number in 1945. The combined effect of these adjustments suggests that there has been no secular change in the sunspot number since coming out of the Maunder Minimum ~1700. Source: http://arxiv.org/abs/1003.4666v1
This document describes the strategies for the development of the Pythia7 program. Both the internal and external structure of the program is discussed.

By using dark nebulae as opaque outer screens, the luminosity function of white dwarfs and M dwarfs has been studied. High-extinction areas towards the Orion A, Serpens and rho Oph cloud complexes were observed, covering a volume corresponding to 464 pc3 in the solar neighbourhood, complete to Mv=16.5. Foreground stars were selected by VRI photometry and photometric parallaxes. The resulting foreground sample consists of 21 M dwarfs and 7 white dwarfs. The derived M-dwarf luminosity function is...

The success of recently proposed models for describing rapidity-gap events in DIS at HERA, in terms additional colour exchange between the struck system and the proton remnant in boson-gluon fusion events, are found to rely heavily on the absence or artificial suppression of perturbative gluon emission in the forward region. A model without such suppression is presented, which cannot describe the rapidity-gap events without a pomeron-inspired mechanism. Source: http://arxiv.org/abs/hep-ph/9512373v1

I got so fed up reading a particular article of Lifehacker, that I decided to start doing my own programming lectures. These are the lectures I wish I had while I was first learning to program. I try to teach you everything you will need to know to do well in Computer Science, while still teaching you via examples whenever possible.

At this 80s Forest Terrain Instrument listening site, all 5 inch speakers and aluminum tubing were recycled for a totally different analog-collecting challenge: integrate terrestrial contexts. Four mics (2-AKG C414 B-ULS; 2-SHURE 635s) were used. The TEAC A3440 four track reel-to-reel playback w/amped-output allowed up to 5 "record/playback planes". Using headphones, re-recordings based on previous tracks encouraged self-accompaniment and second-thought reflections RE nature. The...
